to dougy. we have all become well-versed in the michelle obama of first ladyhood. it didn't follow the hillary clinton model putting her ivy league degrees behind promoting policy or the traditional model of first ladies who, let's face it, have tended not to move around so much. michelle obama has carved out a unique way of being first lady, simply being herself. remember her official white house photo. what you might most recall about it are, two things unlike any portrait of any first lady before and after. her left and right arms. welcome to the gun show. you will see something more remarkable. right there in the room with her looking out over her well-toned left shoulder is president obama thomas jefferson. by picking this back drop, the first lady also brought into the room another part of white house history where women like her were treated like property instead of people. there she stands on the other end of that timeline, a living rebuke to that history, her body, her personhood, possessed by no one but herself. more than any of the other women that have held the title be

. so he's got a political problem. >> i want to ask you because you worked with michele bachmann in her run for presidency. when she heard that interview that obama care is the law of the land, she must have been crawled up in the fetal position thinking shae she has to go back to washington, d.c. and deal with that. is the speaker just trying to tread water? running down the clock to keep his speakership in this new congress. >> at the end of the day, obama care is the law of the land. we begin a much different spot if romney was elected and we'd have full support in washington to repeal it. but what he has said is we need to look at specifics of it that will be difficult to im plemt and go about having serious talks about what we can change. as we said, it's not just about obama care. it's not about tax hikes. it's about taking a serious look at cutting the entitlement spending. i think we're going to hear more and more about that in the next half an hour. >> the serious look is the president is heading into his second term. as we look ahead, and the legacy issue comes into this, alre

it. >> i really wanted to do that. >> michele bachmann out the door. >> that sets the table for compromising. that's part of what president obama and his campaign have talked about when they say the results of the election to some degree will give the conditions for which they think there will be a better opportunity to negotiate where they can and push it through where they can't. >> norm, we probably have to wrap it up here. i do want to get -- we talk on this show a lot of prognostication about what happens to the republican party if, in fact, mitt romney is defeated. the collective session on the psychiatrist's couch. do you think that the tea party ends up being the dominant voice of the conservative movement? do you think there's a chance that centrist elements will have more powerful voices in the coming years? >> i think we're already seeing rush limbaugh and others, use the tea party as a catch-all, trying to frame a narrative if romney loses. and that narrative is going to be there we did it again, we picked another moderate, he couldn't talk the way we wanted him

. >> boats on the sidewalk as a backdrop. thank you very much, michelle franzen. >>> now to politics. just three days to go until the election. the latest nbc news poll show an extremely tight race between president obama, mitt romney. in the key swing states of ohio and florida, that's where both candidates have been spending a lot of their time. joining me now is mark murray, nbc news senior political editor, and edo keith congressional reporter for "the washington post." hi, guys, ready to go? >> good morning. >> how you feeling? >> let's talk about these polls you put out there, mark. what did you find in florida, and ohio? >> well, in ohio, president obama has a six-point advantage among likely voters. 51% to 45%. in florida, it's closer. president obama at 49% among likely voters. yet mitt romney at 47% among likely voters. one thing that is helping president obama is that early vote, the overwhelming number of people who've already voted early say that they are backing president obama. mitt romney has a little bit of a better score over obama on the economy. in florida, but in ohio

be why president obama is the president and won the election. joining me now is e.j. dionne, columnist for the post and an msnbc contributor and michelle carter washington, correspondent for news week and "the daily beast." first of all, thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> good to be with you. >> let me start with you. has the president won this argument? i mean, i think that service politically brilliant. i happen to agree with it, but in terms of idea logically and politically, but to put the republicans in a position where they're going to have to be responsible for raising the taxes on their constituents or say we're going to make your taxes go up if we don't save the rich, i think he put them between a rock and a hard place. >> you know, it's so ironic because when we are in this position because the republicans a long time ago under president bush were trying to stuff more tax cuts into a very limited number so they said aha, if we say they expire, then we can actually pass for tax cuts. now that expiration date means the president has the upper hand. it's clear wit

every 30 years or so. we're not done with the allen wests of the year or the michele bachmanns or even the sharon angels of the world. we're also not done with the bill clintons of of the world and the barack obamas of the world. >> we hear rand paul is talking about not a 30-year run but possibly four years. >> he's still viable. i think it's important to remember that what allen west represented beyond just the tea party was an anti-islamic really almost jihadism and it took root in south florida. he was very stridently anti-muslim and in a way that was ironic because he is an african-american and he took that to extremes as well. at the end of the day he also voted to raise the debt ceiling. so he wasn't a purist on tea party ideology. he think he represents a lot of the contradictions and a lot of the failings of the extreme right and his having lost even narrowly was a huge symbolic victory for democrats. he was one of the top ten targets for democrats in the 2012 election. his losing has great significance. i agree with goldie that tea party ideology is the republican party's bas

't think it's a rubber stamp, but i think the american people said to barack obama we agree with you on a lot of this stuff and want the republican congress to come along. remember, most of the most intransigent folks, alan west, almost michele bachmann, mothers the republican party who made their political careers saying they weren't going to go along with anything that the president wanted to do they lost their elections. >> i remember, steve, president bush, two days after the election, holding a press conference, the president will do it next week, but not immediately after the election, talked about how he viewed the mandate. this is what he said back in 2004. >> let me put it to you this way, i earned capital in the campaign, political capital and now i intend to spend it. it is my style. >> so how much capital does president obama have and where does he spend it? >> i think the president has capital in the election. his victory was decisive but the map date should you can determined by the outcome of the election. and what the election has give the american people is divided g

. boehner was for a deal last year. we have to figure out what does eric cantor think, what does michele bachmann think, what does rand paul think? john bainer is the leader of the republican party in name, but he often is not leading them in policy. unless we know obama $1 trillion in tax increases, i'm not sure that rush limbaugh is for that right now. until we know that other conservatives outside of john boehner support that idea, it's hard to see where the compromise is. so i think i'm not optimistic either about where we are right now. >> just to jump in, i would echo that. sometimes we analyze these guys like boehner is the ceo. and that may be the case, but he has a board of directors. he's got other stakeholders to deal with. and we've got to see some movement from them if that bipartisanship that you were talking about in the beginning, mara, if that's going to go anywhere. >> i'm sorry, go ahead. >> i would just point out there was real skepticism about whether boehner could deliver a deal with the debt ceiling fight. and his party did buck his leadership to some extent, but u
